>> got him looking! and the giants have won it all! >> we'll show you the celebrations. how the numerous fires and all the mess in the streets impageanted the people who live and work here. plus a monster storm that could cause catastrophic destruction. hurricane sandy getting even stronger as it gets closer to the biggest cities on the east coast. ktvu 2 morning news continues. >> announcer: complete bay area news coverage starts right now. this is ktvu 2 morning news. >> good morning. it's monday, october 29. i'm dave clark. >> good morning, i'm pam cook. thank you for joining us this morning. we're watching the weather here
6:01am
and out east because it's a monster -- >> it's unprecedented, historical. for us, though, we have a little change in our weather pattern. now, because of the magnitude of sandy, everything is kind of slowing down so we're holding off until thursday morning but we have dense fog. that is until 8:00 but some of the fog until 9:00. here's sal. stever, traffic on interstate 880 oakland good in both directions and more crowded, though, as you head to the bay bridge toll plaza. also we're looking at the toll plaza and more crowded with still room for fast track and carpoolers. let's go back to the deverick. topping our news for the second time in three years, the san francisco giants are world champions. they swept the detroit tigers with a 4-3 victory in extra innings of game 4. [ cheers and applause ] >> got him looking! and the giants have won it all! >> he struck out miguel crab a
6:02am
to end the game in the 10th inning and marco scutaro with the big hit, a two-out sing that will brought in the go- ahead run. the giants say it was a team effort. >> enjoy every minute of it. it was hard-earned and incredible group of guys that fought for each other. >> certainly is an incredible group of guys. this is the second giants world championship in three years. they're the first national league team to complete that since the cincinnati reds in the 1970s. some rowdy giants fans trashed the street of san francisco overnight. ali rasmus is here to show us what vandals did. >> reporter: well, this is where part of the celebration became very messy, ugly, and smelly, out on 16th and mission, which is behind us. you can see the remnants of one of the burnt-out dumpster in the middle of the street.
6:03am
now, this has been here for several hours. we checked with one of the dpw crews, and i believe the problem is the plastic from one of those bins melted into the asphalt so that's why they are having a bit of a difficult time trying to clear away. there's a police car behind it so some of the cars driving down here don't directly run into it. now, this all started after the giants victory when rowdy fans pour into the streets and within hours, people began setting dumpsters on fire. a fire back tollon chief said there was fires on almost every block from 16 and mission to 24th. one business was threatened, but firefighters extinguished the fire. fans were participating in an unlawful assembly and told to leave the area. we saw officers make several arrests. some mission district resident said the party got quickly out of hand. >> it was fun at first. it's fun in the beginning. but, you know, the reason that
6:04am
i left the chaos was because a friend of mine was hit in the face with a beer can. and that's when it was just too wild. >> people should not tear up city they love so much. why would the giants want to win again if this is what we do to show our appreciation? >> reporter: one mission resident was so frustrated with tipped-over trash can she is came to clean out part of the mess in front of her apartment building. departments of works crews cleaned out the trash and made a lot of progress because this street was much, much messier than it is right now. they're extinguishing fires in some dumpster that flared up and continued to smolder for hours. now, we arrived at 1:00 this morning and drove around the mission district. we didn't see any broken windows or any visible signs of structural damage to any of the businesses on mission or valencia between 16th and 24th so it appears most of the damage was limited to the
6:05am
dumpsters and trash cans and some news racks left out here. live in san francisco, allies are mass, ktvu channel 2 news. >> a viewer sent this video of a muni bus set on fire. this happened on third and market streets overnight. we have no word on anyone being injured. and there was a loud but peaceful celebration in san francisco's inner sunset district. now, ktvu viewer sent this cell phone video from ninth and irving. some fans were banging on the tops of newspaper racks after just bowering out onto the streets. now, this celebration didn't appear to get out of hand in this part of the city. [ cheers and applause ] and a lot of love for the giants in the south bay as well. the san jose bar pack with fans wearing their orange and black. the fans can't wait for the giants to come back home and a lot of them plan to be at
6:06am
wednesday's victory parade. well, bay area sports stores can expect a business boom as fans look for world series championship merchandise. ktvu's brian flores is in union city now, where some have been working through the night to get all the gear ready. brian? >> reporter: hey, pam. yeah. good morning to you. definitely a good day to be a giants fan, no question about that. yeah, we're live in studio 1204, one of several printing shops cranking the world series championship t-shirts for the san francisco giants in union city. let's bring in chuck johnson, who is the head of studio 1204. chuck, i understand there's three different designs for the world series shirts. can you explain them? >> well, we have three we're printing. the gray one is the locker room t-shirt, which is a shirt that players are putting on right after the game ended. then this is what they're calling the parade t-shirt, and then just one tore desi we're doing there so a total of three
6:07am
different designs. >> reporter: talk to us when you started printing the shirts. i understand it's kind of a short process. talk a little about that. >> well, what we do -- we work with imagewear and they ask us to be what they call a hot market printer. that means they send the shirts in anticipation of winning the world series or national championships and we basically have to get ready to print. we get the designs ready, sample them, send them out for approval with major league baseball, and then just -- keep our fingers crossed that we'll need to print them. >> reporter: you have been starting since last night -- early this morning? >> we actually started about 24 hours ago and took a break of about six hours and came back after the game finished and have been going ever since. >> reporter: all right and will probably go on until noon today when they're cranking out the shirts. you can find them at a lot of different locations. we will have that at 6:45. back to you in the studio. >> all right, very exciting.
6:08am
we have complete coverage of the world series on our website. just go to ktvu.com and click on the "world series" tab. >> 6:07. sal, you trained them well. i'm giving it to you. >> thank you very much. >> you did a great job. >> yeah, okay. just because i put my special shirt on, they want it. >> that's what it was. >> keep believing that. >> all those little things all of us fans did, right? >> right. good morning everybody. you know what? the fog is one of those things you have to keep in the back of your mind today if you are driving almost anywhere in the bay, especially the west bay. now, you can see here -- i meant the peninsula, of course. the traffic is going to be a little slow at the toll plaza. they haven't turned on the metering lights but there's a little fog creeping through and will be foggy on the bridge as well. moving along to interstate 880, not so foggy in oakland and looks pretty good in both direction in front of the coliseum, southbound looking okay to hayward.
6:09am
if you're driving to the 101, a nice drive to the airport in case you're trying to catch a flight we can even out of downtown san francisco, 101 looks clear to the airport in san bruno. 6:08. let's go to steve. >> thank you. warm air squashing some of the fog so we have dense, coastal fog and inland fog so a fog advisory is out until 8:00 but some of that will probably last will little longer -- yeah, maybe a little misty on the coast. a little damp but likely tomorrow into wednesday we will have a ramp up of that. our cloud forecast doesn't do much for high-and-midlevel clouds but keeps low clouds on the coast so some of this fog will begin to increase -- i think wednesday night into thursday as the front get closer but slowing down and makes sense with the absolute just monster system back east slowing everything down but we will have a lot of low clouds back to the coast. 40s and 50s on the temps right now, overall cool for some but foggy for others. high pressure still in place today but will slowly break down as the system comes in so
6:10am
a dense fog advisory out. the cooling begins today as well. look for this trend to continue into tuesday and wednesday. we'll bottom out wednesday into thursday and start another warmup for the weekend. the parade looks good with low clouds, maybe a little drizzle bull overall, 50s to near 60. we don't have to worry about rain, that's for sure. now, if it was thursday i would say, yeah. but thursday looks good. the rain will hold off until 6:00 a.m. thursday so overall unless you're by the coast, we're all right. foggy, sun, cooler, dense fog advisory until 8:00 but some of the dense fog may last longer. 70s for some, 60s for other, but maxing out over the weekend. we'll start to drop tomorrow and more so wednesday. more rain thursday morning but clearing out friday with the weekend in view -- sunny and warmer again. >> all right, thank you, tom. 6:10. hurricane sandy getting even stronger, barreling towards the east coast. schools, mass transit, the financial markets are all shut down this morning.

6:29am
6:30am
>> good morning. >> welcome.

6:31am
and they will be coming back to san francisco this afternoon as the 2012 world champions. as you know, they beat the detroit tigers, swept the series 4-3 last night in extra innings in game 4. [ cheers and applause ] >> got him looking! and the giants have won it all! >> that's a cover shot right there. sergio romo struck out triple- crown winner miguel cabrera to end the game in the 10th. but in top of the 10th, marco scutaro to bring in the go- ahead run -- pam liked the slide. >> i love that. >> scutaro credited rest of his teammates. >> my team is just -- came through. first series, second series, and now -- we shut down the tigers. i said to my team -- please, i don't want to be against the world again. let's try to get rid of this quick. >> yeah. in case you didn't know, this
6:32am
is the giants' second world championship in three years. they're if first national league team to do that since the cincinnati reds did it back in the mid1970s. now, there's something else -- a big mess to clean up all around following last night's celebration the streets. ktvu's tear a moriarty is near the park right now. you're going to tell us about vandalism and violence. tara? >> reporter: some officers told us this is actually the worst case of damage they have ever seen in san francisco. we are here at third and bryant, where a bunch of people sort of converged on the ballpark and on their way down, they stopped -- these are the offices for wikipedia and you can see all the shattered glass here. this is all the champagne bottles and broken windows that we have here. and we spoke with a security guard who works this area, and he said he was actually assaulted when an angry mob showed up. >> you can see all the glass
6:33am
thrown. the fire department picked those up. but basically, it was, like, 200 people and, like, i couldn't stop them. >> reporter: you wish you had maybe some police officers here to help? >> wish i had an ak. >> reporter: police officers tell ktvu 2 that officers were outnumber and the department was not prepared to handle the crowds. muni had to shut down the rail service because of glass on the tracks and cut off the power to rail wires because people were jumping on top of the rail cars, setting fires and shooting off fireworks. but this giants win did start off as a celebration. [ cheering ] >> oh, my gosh, it's amazing! i can't believe we did it in four games! >> second championship in three years -- go giants, baby, whoo! >> reporter: now, all over the city, partying hit a feverish pitch, especially at civic center plaza, where more than 10,000 people gathered to watch the game on the jumbotron.
6:34am
people were dancing and singing in the streets and on top of cars, carrying broom sticks, signifying the sweep of the  tigers, but there's quite a bit of damage and learned at least two officers were hit by flying glass -- one in the leg and one in the arm. an officer also told us that there was a stabbing and a shooting just a few blocks from the ballpark. most of the street sweepers seem to have gone but hearing a lot of brooms -- a lady across the street sweeping outside to get all the shards of glass cleared out of the way. as the cars drive by, you can hear the crunch of the glass so they still have the quite a bit of work to do. maybe they will be able to do that once the sun comes up. live in san francisco, i'm tara moriarty, channel 2 news. in other parts of the city, several people were arrested overnight in the mission district after some fans became too rowdy there. police in riot gear tried for several hours to disburse the crowds. trash cans were burned in the middle of the street just before 1:00 this morning. police told fans that they were
6:35am
participating in an unlawful assembly and were toll to leave the area. now, several bonfires set in streets throughout the city. that's huge! people were seen throwing trash can in the fire and some were jumping over the flames. streets were closed -- major traffic problems were cause for people trying to get around the city and home. things got out of hand near seventh and market street in san francisco. one of our photographers took this video of people jumping on top of a muni bus. one person inside making a phone call -- a little worried there. then in the same area, a viewer sent this video of a car flip over by celebrating fans. now, we have complete coverage of the world series on our website -- some of the really exciting times and moments. just go to ktvu.com and click on the "world series" tab. >> all right, pam, 6:35. hurricane sandy gets stronger and strong as it heads to the east coast. thousands of flights have been grounded and stranding a
6:36am
passengers and disrupting air traffic around the world. ktvu's alec salve range a.j. at the airport. what's the latest on cancellations? >> reporter i just talked with a spokesman here. he told me the latest information -- 150 flights cancelled to and from sfo today. here it is. you can see the board is busy this morning. washington, d.c. -- cancelled, as you can see right here. this is all as a result of hurricane sandy shutting down airplanes on the eastern seaboard. the weather cancellations are piling up. the airlines have cancelled all their flight from sfo to six east coast cities today -- boston, philadelphia, new york's jfk, newark, washington, d.c., and baltimore. any travelers trying to get to those cities may not make it until later this week. most of those flight that are on united airlines because this is one of their hubs, but american, jet blue, virgin,
6:37am
u.s. airways, and delta impact by the storm as well. the airlines are booking people best they can but of course, a major inconvenience. a short time ago, i talked with a couple from italy who are here in san francisco on vacation and now their cancelled flight to new york means extended vacation. >> we were supposed to leave today but our flight was delayed and now we leaving on friday. a longer stay. three days more in san francisco. >> reporter: you get an extended vacation. >> ah, yes. [ laughter ] cool. >> reporter: that's what you wanted, more time in san francisco. >> yes. >> reporter: the best advice from the airport spokesperson i talk with this morning is for people to come to their airlines, especially if they're traveling to major cities on the eastern seaboard, to see if their flight is, in fact,
6:38am
cancelled. as we come out live, this is the security checkpoint here in terminal 2. tsa spokesperson -- i should say a tsa representative -- said to me off-camera a short of off- handed way -- boy, things are pretty light today. things are not very busy, not as busy as they should be at sfo. in all likelihood, the reason being the cancellation of so many flights. it seems as though people are calling ahead and realizing their flights are cancel to the east coast and not coming here to sfo. that's the best way to play things this morning. it does seem like the cans lakes will likely continue, according to the spokesperson i talk to, through at least tomorrow. live this morning at sfo, alex savidge, ktvu, channel 2 news. as many as 50 million people could be affect by the storm that is expected to hit landfall on the new jersey coast late today. renie marsh is in asbury park, new jersey, where the storm is kick up the waves. renie? >> reporter: yeah, good morning, pam. i'll tell you, very windy and
6:39am
not an understatement here. the wind has definitely picked up, still getting light rain. atlantic city mean-looking, shall we say. let's take a lack at the waves -- really choppy out here. we expect the impact -- well, that will be wide-reaching. we're expecting 50 million people impacted by hurricane sandy. sandy is already battering cities on toast coast with heavy rain, strong winds, and pounding surf. tom cor bit warned sandy is not your typical storm. >> this storm is moving slowly and bringing high volumes of rain. essentially, this is a hurricane wrap in a nor'easter. >> reporter: the new york stock exchange suspended trading for monday. broadway shows are dark, and the subway system has stopped running. resident in low-lying areas have been ask to evacuate. new york mayor bloomberg urged residents to respond. >> i can't stress enough this is for your own safety and if
6:40am
